DCF 2018 Outcome: Achieving Delivery on SDGs Pledge in each specific Community, Country, Continent location context, in less than 12 years remaining to end 2030 target date - Call for Development Cooperation Rapid/Fast and Radical/Fundamental Change in all 193/306 UN Member States Governments – Executive, Legislature, Judiciary in all Tiers as well as in all UN System: UNO, WBG, IMF, WTO (ITO) Entities – Headquarters, Regional Offices, Sub-regional Offices, Country Offices and Sub-Country Offices and their National and International Partners sides – Beyond Slogan (2).
In Paper (1), we raised National and International Development Cooperation serious issues of serious business demanding serious attention of Development Cooperation Forum, DCF; UNDESA; other UNO Entities; other UN System: UNO, WBG, IMF, WTO (ITO) Entities; 193/306 UN Member States Governments – Executive, Legislature, Judiciary; Political Groupings of Countries – GPEDC, OECD, EU/EC etc.
The huge interest generated in Paper (1) encourages us to release Paper (2) setting out additional issues that need to be simultaneously addressed and on time.
Resilience: Key Driver for achieving delivery on SDGs Pledge by 2030
The essential highlights set out in Paper (1), of the Joint Paper by US Army Corp of Engineers, USACE and OECD Senior Officials on Resilience in US Government Entities and OECD Entities, need to be recognized as Key Driver for achieving delivery on SDGs Pledge in all 193/306 UN Member States by end 2030 target date – less than 12 years remaining through 193/306 UN Member States; UN System: UNO, WBG, IMF, WTO (ITO); OECD, EU/EC, GPEDC (Global Partnership for Effective Development Cooperation and their National and International Partners to jointly address Resilience, Mitigation and Adaptation Dimension of SDGs Pledge real and complex issues on the ground as applicable in each specific Community, Country, Continent location context and in ways that ensure National and International Stakeholders JOINTLY find answer to SDGs Pledge How Questions and related How Questions as applicable in each specific Community, Country, Continent location context.
UNDP in 2016 released Paper on “PREVENTING VIOLENT EXTREMISM THROUGH PROMOTING INCLUSIVE DEVELOPMENT, TOLERANCE AND RESPECT FOR DIVERSITY - A development response to addressing radicalization and violent extremism.
This Paper addressed Conflict, Inequalities and Unsustainable Production as well as Resilience, Mitigation and Adaptation issues in 2016 Year 1 of Implementation of SDGs. Had the many good ideas and pertinent suggestions set out in this Paper been fully implemented with effective monitoring and evaluation of this implementation, greater success would have been made in 3 Years implementing SDGs than has been recorded in most if not all countries in our world today.
UNDP in 2018 released Paper on “Leave No One Behind”. Had this Paper actually Learnt Lessons from Implementation or Non Implementation of UNDP 2016 Paper on Preventing Violent Extremism Approach, the “Leave No One Behind” Paper would have better addressed How Questions.
As long as UNDP keep avoiding or evading answer to How Questions, the ideas and suggestions in its Papers will remain just that – Paper Ideas with very little utility and relevance to UNDP Shop Front Staff on the ground seeking to meaningfully address fundamental issues raised in these Papers as appropriate in each specific Community, Country, Continent location context as well as the 170 Counties where UNDP Operate and seek to serve. This underlines urgent need for UNDP to take its Motto: Empowered Lives, Resilient Nations – Beyond Slogan.
The above identified problem is not a problem only on UNDP side, but also on DCF, UNDESA, FAO, UNESCO, ILO, WHO, other UN System: UNO, WBG, IMF, WTO (ITO); GPEDC, OECD, EU/EC, other Political Groupings of Countries as well as 193/306 UN Member States Governments – Executive, Legislature and Judiciary at all tiers sides.
As long as these Institutions and Governments keep dancing around finding answer to How Questions, finding sustainable solutions to get all 193/306 UN Member States back On Track to achieve delivery on SDGs Pledge in less than 12 years remaining to end 2030 target date will be mirage. Allowed to occur, the ultimate consequences for the 8.5 Billion People in our World of 2030 especially the 5 Billion Poor Children, Youth, Women, Men and Elders will be catastrophic. Violence in all its forms – political, economic, social etc would be worse including its extremist forms thus putting the 3 Billion that are more well-to-do in danger or harm’s way.
New North South Relationship
The Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe on 8 April 1992 released a Report on North South Interdependence and Solidarity
Had the many good ideas and pertinent suggestions set out in this Report been implemented in past 26 years, there will be no Brexit, the EU Europe Project will not be in present jeopardy and many North and South Countries will be On Track to achieve delivery on SDGs Pledge by end 2030.
EU Europe Project is a Good Idea that is being Badly Implemented. This European Council on Foreign Relations (Think Tank) Rethink: Europe Report on EU by 2025 underlines points made in University of Oslo, EU is in Crises and EU is the Crises Report 2014.
The 2 Reports essentially focused on the problems and addressed What Questions. There is urgent need to shift focus to the sustainable solutions through effectively answering How Questions.
As long as Globalization remains Force for Evil and is reinforced by Brexit that is Force for Evil, seeking to achieve delivery on SDGs Pledge in EU and Worldwide is Mirage. However, should Globalization now become Force for Good alongside by (Alternative) Brexit that is Force for Good, the HUGE Task that needs to be done to get all 193/306 UN Member States back On Track to achieve delivery on SDGs Pledge in less than 12 years remaining to end 2030 target date, an still be done, but only if decisive action is taken by relevant National and Global Leaders to Kick Start Global PUSH to achieve delivery on SDGs by 2030 NOW, that is from January 2019 – December 2020 a New Foundation is Built to Carry the Superstructure that effectively support this achievement.
It is a puzzle that OEDC, GPEDC, UNEMG, UNDESA, DCF, FAO, UNDP and other UNO Entities; 193/306 UN Member States Governments – Executive, Legislature and Judiciary in seeking to achieve delivery on Global Goals - SDGs (2015), AAAA (2015), COP21 (2015), Agenda 21 (Rio – 1992 and Rio+20 (2012) and NIEO (1974), as appropriate in each specific Community, Country, Continent location context Call for Comprehensive Approach but keep pursuing Incomprehensive Approach; Parrot Change and Business Unusual but keep practicing No Change and Business as Usual.
Our Fragile Planet is now at a decisive moment. Our Leaders do not have luxury of time. If National and International Stakeholders in each specific Community, Country, Continent location context do not start doing the Right Things and on time, irreversible damage could be done to our Fragile Planet one irreversibly point is crossed as our Leaders continue making Wrong Choices and our World keep accelerating on MADning (Mutually Assured Destruction) Road to DOOM.
Should relevant authorities on 193/306 UN Member States and UN System: UNO, WBG, IMF, WTO (ITO) sides return to 2014 Cross Roads, take Right Turn to MAPing Road to BOOM and start celebrating at Pace sufficient to achieve delivery on SDGs Pledge in all 193/306 UN Member States in less than 12 years remaining to end 2030 target date, there are WIN – WIN Sustainable Benefits for all Stakeholders in our Fragile Planet.
It is our hope that opportunity for bright prospects of sues would not be lost. To avoid this answer to HOW questions within Pilot Program and Scale Up Program need to start without delay.
